Congratulations to Year 1 TV & Film student Pearl Neilson!
The Preloader 2013 Film Competition Final took place on Tuesday night at Salisbury Arts Centre – this event is a competition for filmmakers across Wiltshire. We’re very proud to say that ‘Best Film’ was won by Pearl for her film ‘It Gets Better’ a short talking-heads piece in which young LGBT people talk about their lives and how suicide is never the answer to any abuse that people might dish out.
This is a fantastic achievement for a first year student (it was the first film she made!) on the Level 3 BTEC 90 Credit Diploma TV & Film.
In addition, ‘Sparksite’, who asked her to make the video have also commissioned her to make a series of videos for them and set her up with a professional film-maker, who will act as her mentor throughout the making of the series.
